FG: How would you describe your personal style?
LV: My style tends to change a lot depending on the setting, for work I try to keep it very classic and sophisticated but on the weekend I love to experiment with fashion…but I would say that my clothes are consistently feminine, colorful and well tailored…and there’s always a tiny touch of edge!
FG: Name 5 items every woman should have in her closet.
LV: Dark Skinny Jeans, Nude Pumps, A Navy or Black Blazer, A Colorful Shift Dress and a Printed Blouse
FG: Who is your fashion icon and why?
LV: I admire of lot of women for their style…Grace Kelly for her elegance, Chanel for her classics, Carine Roitfield for her sophistication and women like Anna Dello Russo for her fearlessness, but I don’t have one icon. I love taking elements of someone’s signature style and mixing it with my own fashion point of view!
FG: What fashion trend is your least favorite?
LV: Currently, I really don’t like over-sized spectacles/nerd glasses…they look terrible on everyone and why would you purposely try to make yourself look bad??
FG: What the weirdest item in your wardrobe?
LV: Don’t have one!
FG: What is your style philosophy?
LV: Know your body! It will really force you to make the right (and often hard) choices when you shop and try to find your style.
